Sorry, some of the pictures in this post are not the best quality, I might retake them at a later date.I went out with my best friend for some Sakae Sushi buffet today, and I decided to just slap on some lip make-up for the fun of it.
(I realised that my iPhone doesn't take photos as well as I would like it to... I need help! >.<)
So, lo and behold, my first Lip Of The Day #LOTD! (And a bit of a review... sort of.)
My naked, dry and chapped lips.
As you can see, I have kind of pigmented lips. And they are dry to the boot. What a total pain in the ass. Sometimes, when I'm not paying attention, I bite my lips and start peeling off the dry layers of skin, which eventually leaves my lips sore and bloody... But that's a different story.
Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips #1 Shiny Pink Shower
In one of my previous posts (here) I mentioned that the Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips were rather "gloopy", and too sheer and too shimmery. Today, I would just like to take back everything I said.

The Sweet Shower Lips, though sheer, actually has a very nice colour. In the above image, I did not layer repeatedly. Yet the colour came out rather nicely. The Sweet Shower Lips aren't "gloopy", they are very moisturising. They made my lips feel soft and really moisturised and kissable (for lack of a better description). Lastly, though I said it was too shimmery, it actually isn't that bad when you wear it. Just enough shimmers to give a girly touch without going overboard. It isn't that creamy or anything either! It's barely even there!

But because just one colour isn't enough, I dug out this baby from my stash of Etude House products.
As I've said before, I'm not too comfortable with wearing orange makeup, so I dabbed this on the inner parts of my lips to create a kind of soft gradient.
Not sure if I did it right, but I'm pretty okay with this look. Maybe next time I would try the VIP girl Dear Darling Lips on its own.
In terms of moisture, shimmers and colour, I LOVE the Sweet Shower Lips.
In terms of how lasting it is... Mehh. I think you'd have to reapply it rather often. Like after a drink or something.
I know how lasting lip colours are is quite an important factor for some, but since my lips are pretty pigmented anyway, it doesn't bother me that much.
Overall, I give two thumbs up for Sweet Shower Lips.
On the other hand, I might have to try VIP girl Dear Darling Lips solo to decide more.

P.s. My boyfriend, who is currently in Korea, tells me that apparently Etude House has a terrible reputation in her home country??! Is this true?! Cos I am devastated.
